Dog Safety Harnesses Fail Crash Tests
When riding in a car one of the important things we do is to make sure everyone buckles up. Safety first, especially for the ones we love and want to keep safe. However, many of us don't do the same for our canine companions. Check out this link to read why you should secure your pooch in the car. http://www.cnn.com/2012/03/16/living/pet-car-ride-dangers
For years I have been telling everyone that if their dog isn't riding in a crate they need to be seat-belted in with a safety harness. I am embarrassed and shocked to find that most of those dog seat-belt harnesses failed crash tests.
This is another one of those examples that consumers need to do their homework to make sure that the products they buy do what the manufacturer claim it will. Before you purchase a safety harness for your dog please make sure you find out if it passed crash tests.
